I talked with the Simonton rep yesterday and he knew right away how to stop the windows from howling. All windows making noise were double hung windows. just below the upper stop for the bottom window, in the side channel casing there was a small hole in the side channel casing. He had me fill the hole with silicon . The rep. stated the noise came from the wind blowing in the bottom weep holes , up the frame channel and then out this small hole. I filled the one hole in the side channel on each side and worked like a charm . Windy today and no noise....
